I thought this was a joke when I first read the heading but it is indeed real, a beauty peagant for nuns. I am certain that Vatican would never support any of this but I think it is a good idea to show a different side of these devoted ladies.
Anyone with internet access will get a chance to vote for the most beautiful nun to be aptly named Miss Sister Italy 2008. Father Antonio Rungi will post pictures of the nuns on his blog (Fathers blog too?) for users to vote. The Father says “This contest will be a way to show there isn’t just the beauty we see on television but also a more discreet charm”
I say great for the nuns and all the best to each of them in the innagrual Holy Beauty Peagant.
